Using the loan data submitted by these financial institutions, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) creates aggregate tables for each metropolitan statistical area (MSA) or metropolitan division (MD) (where appropriate), and individual institution disclosure reports. The aggregate tables and individual disclosure reports for calendar years 1999 - 2011 are available on this website (www.ffiec.gov/hmda) or also on the FFIEC website (www.ffiec.gov/reports.htm). Furthermore, the FFIEC provides to the public a few other data products, including TS and LAR raw data software and Census data on this website. See the data request order form regarding the products, their format, and availability.
